Welcome to the inaugural edition of Buyer's Remorse where, each week, What-Was-I-Thinking special correspondent Bonnie Datt asks a famous person to dish about something they thought they omg-loved, but, later, deeply regretted buying.
And who better to kick the series off than designer, model, figure skating champion (and one of our favorite all-around fashionistos) Johnny Weir.
So, Johnny, what's your biggest retail regret?
Johnny Weir: When I first started to spend money on clothes, for a long time I only bought things that were really, really trendy. I remember one of the first purchases were $400 dollar Dolce & Gabbana jeans with patches, stripes and stars all over them. I was so proud of them when I bought them, and then I got home and was like, "What am I going to wear this with? I only have sneakers! I'm sixteen!"
